Two Bodies Found In Big Spring 7/30/13
July 30, 2013
"It's very sad. Carol's like family," said Donna Rigdon, a neighbor.
Neighbors tell CBS 7 itís a sad situation. They hadn't seen Helen Thomason or her daughter Carol in weeks, but that wasn't unusual.
"She, a lot of times, wanted to be by herself so we tried not to bother her too much," said Frances Ferguson, a neighbor.
A mail carrier notified police after noticing medicine she delivered to the house last week hadnít been picked up. Yesterday she saw flies collecting on the bathroom window and noticed a foul odor coming from the house. She notified her supervisor who called the police. Neighbors say when police tried to air out the home, the smell was overpowering.
"You could smell it pretty strong. We could smell it to nine, ten o clock last night," said Rigdon.
Police chief Chad Williams said the bodies were so badly decomposed itís hard to tell what happened, but they don't suspect foul play.
"We're looking at all angles of it right now. We're trying to piece this story together, until we get the preliminary results, (then) we'll know where to go with that," he said.
